Storyline

Love him or hate him, there is no denying that George Steinbrenner has been one of the most colorful and successful owners in contemporary sports. Heading up a group that bought the New York Yankees in 1973 for $10 million, "King George" emphatically branded the world's most celebrated sports franchise as his own. The Boss has boasted 10 pennants, 6 World Series trophies and a corporate net worth more than $1 billion. But for all the glory and riches, the Steinbrenner legacy is also mixed with wasteful and embarrassing spending and countless episodes of tabloid-style soap. Now with George's health seriously failing, the Steinbrenner heirs are finally beginning to emerge from their father's larger-than-life shadow as they collectively move his franchise into a new home and a new era.

Quite nostalgic, though I am not sure if non-Yankee fans will really appreciate it.

"But for all the glory and riches, the Steinbrenner legacy is also mixed with wasteful and embarrassing spending and countless episodes of tabloid-style soap."

The above statement is taken from the summary of this episode of "30 for 30" from IMDb. Had this been the focus of the film, I might have appreciated it more--as I really would have loved to have heard all the dirt. Instead, the fans' love/hate relationship with George Steinbrenner was only mentioned in passing. Instead, the film is mostly about the Steinbrenner era passing--with the retirement of George, his death and mostly the creation of a new Yankee Stadium. It's all very nostalgic but also paints a very superficial picture--with some of the more negative aspects of the franchise mentioned only in passing or not at all. So, if you want a critical analysis of all this, this isn't exactly the film for you. It's more just a homage to the wonderfulness of the Yankees. Great if you are a Yankee fan but not enough to warrant seeking this episode out if you aren't. I really would have loved to hear more about high ticket prices, the Billy Martin saga and what non-Yankees thought of all this.
